The Joker Movie is another craptastic prequel in the Batverse that was designed to show how, and excuse his behavior as the Joker. Its whole 120-minute purpose is to demonstrate how the Joker came about growing up as a neglected child of society that was tied to radiators and abused by his mother's boyfriends, having a batshit insane mother, and keeps getting himself into bad situations because he has Pseudobulbar Affect and laughs at the wrong times.
Trying to be similar to the movie Taxi Driver it absolutely fails and will likely become a meme for the normies forever.
As a failed comedian, Arthur Fleck/The Joker doesn't get noticed until he becomes a pre-internet meme. In the talk show era of the 1980s, Arthur Fleck gets roasted when his standup routine is shown on a late-night talk show where he is standing at the mic laughing and badly telling jokes.
During this, The Joker, Arthur Fleck, winds up starting a movement against the rich by doing a Bernie Goetz on a subway killing 3 Wall-Street power brokers who decided to kick the shit out of him because he was laughing when they were throwing French Fries at a lonely woman on a train.
The movie climaxes, finally, when he shoots late-night talk show host Murray Franklin on live tv as the punchline to a joke and goes on a tirade where it is the societal system that defines what is right and wrong and kills Murray because his goal was to make fun of him. Contents
The movie spends 120 minutes trying to show The Joker's acceptance of what he truly is, a batshit insane, psychopathic killing machine.
For the most part, it fails because it waits to do a reveal at the end of the movie that what he thought was a relationship with the nigress down the hall was all a hallucination.
To put it simply it sux because if you haven't seen movies like Taxi Driver then you miss the subtle nuances of him talking to himself for some type of attention.
